...one, two, three, four, five, six, seven all good girls go to heaven

People of Montreal Did you fall Did you freeze Did you break in the knees Your friends won't help you now Their body heat is Depleted From booze and too much love So alone With spaghetti and a song About bad kids Who would have guessed Your friends won't help you now Their body heat is Depleted From booze and too much love Yeah, what a lovely winter Let's seal the door and stay inside Behind the smokescreen all your friends are having fun Heavy metal singers and their girlfriends get it on

Blue steel, sweet penetration Lock up, vaccination of this nation Stand clear, the future's not yet here You know the deal, the lady's here to steal What's point? What's point? Ain't everything just alright? What's point? What's point? Doesn't beer always taste fine? Booze hounds, the pride of the empire Moonshine, the residue of war crimes Former child prodigies sing us a song I used to like them, but that was long ago What's point? What's point? Ain't everything just alright? What's point? What's point? Doesn't beer still taste fine? Whose drugs you take Is whose side you're on Nothing to do about it The deal is done Whose drugs you take Is whose side you're on It's non-refundable The deal is done Our body is the blessing Our soul is the curse

All the trucks going there and back Clogging up the arteries The tradition of loneliness Space race's arrived at Earth Flyover, triumph of mankind Gone are the times of crossroads Each of them knows the destination And therefore they are Identical twins, different license plates Asphalt shows off its scars Flyover, triumph of mankind Gone are the times of crossroads Ride high Drink only when you have time Peace of mind Can you rely on your third eye

Chances are we met In a different haircut In a different century I've practiced my pick-up lines They're so refined And so unpredictable I think your great great great great great great granddaughter ain't nearly as beautiful as you LOVE IS TIMELESS, BUT TIMELESS IS JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR UNDEAD... (verse repeat) (chorus repeat) What will we do with our miraculous bodies? Give them to our children, our fictional offspring?

You light up like a match, you make a beautiful mess You light up like a match, and I’m sitting waiting Biding my time, in pursuit of a god, or a greater goal Girl, I could use some of your hope
8.
Spilt wine and offshore drilling make you a man Tax papers, sons & daughters, the job that you land I wanna drill it up, I wanna write it down, what does it say? When the future's so uncertain, well, what's the plan? If you can reach it, reach it, don't just stand around waiting for a miracle Now it's just me and machinery It's all gone, astroturf & my SUV I've built a house, I've built a tomb, I'm so cool When the time comes to go home, I will drill on, I will drill on If you can reach it, reach it, don't just stand around waiting for a miracle Can you give me silver, can you give me gold Do you wanna see the secrets that I hold? Sophisticated boom boom Sophisticated boom boom Can you give me silver, can you give me gold Do you wanna see the secrets that I hold?
9.
You thought you were living on the edge But the edge was dull and you weren't even alive Like the old gypsy in a cowboy hat Who watched the river flow But it stood still Yeah it stood still And we're not going anywhere, either You thought it was love at first sight But there was no love, plus you were blind Like the old gypsy in a cowboy hat Who watched the river flow But it stands still Yeah it stands still And we're not going anywhere, either You thought you were on top of things And then you slept through the awakening Like the old gypsy in a cowboy hat Who watched the river flow But it stands still Yeah it stands still And we're not going anywhere, either
